Reading is Good for You, Parents! Yes, really!


Did you know that reading is good for you? Reading is not only important for children but it’s also very important for adults. It not only increases your word vocabulary and stimulates your mind, but also gives you a feeling of wellbeing and promotes good health, dispels feelings of loneliness, improves your memory, promotes better patterns of sleep, and don’t forget – it brings families closer when they share and read books together.

You have heard me say this so many times. I truly believe it keeps me positive and in a good frame of mind to have a book to read every day. Goodreads is always sending me notes about another level I have crushed with my avid reading! I read 100 books in 2022 but only had a Reading Challenge posted as 75 with Goodreads. I more than made my quota, for sure!

This year my Reading Challenge for 2023 is 80 books. I hope to surpass that by several books. Please view books to help authors by spreading word about their books. Tell your family and friends too. We authors will appreciate your efforts and send love your way. Once you write your first post it becomes easily and fun to do more. You make a difference in an author’s life this way and bring a smile to their faces.
